    This discussion (about Cruz's assertion) is about Obama's desire to classify it as a Utility and the possible ramifications of that.

    Once we get past that and folks understand that what Obama wants to do is not a wise choice, we can discuss other related topics.
    Well sorry, but you don't dictate where this thread goes. I will continue to post what I do for others to have a chance to comment on. If you don't want to, then that's up to you. But I will continue to do so regardless.

    This is all in reaction to the ISPs and Cruz would rather to just let them do it.

    If you side for freedom, you at least side with net neutrality. I'm not saying that Obama's solution is the way to go, but yes, the ISPs need to be stopped from doing this.
    I like how you took what I stated and turned it into "you're either with us or against us" angle.

    net neutrality means to give no packet, or group of packets, special treatment based on origination, destination, or saturation. If you apply that to all three ISP tiers, you would still be waiting for this page to load.

    Given a finite amount of bandwidth on line A, if user X pays for more bandwidth than user Y, user Y's traffic is throttled down to make room for user X.

    You obviously don't get it.
    You are off topic and don't care that you are.

    But that works both ways - their competition could form a partnership with an ILEC and have them throttled. Netflix isn't looking for this to happen - they've already been bent over by Comcast. Who wins, Facetime or Skype? Or does Facetime go merge with TWC and Skype merges with ATT? And it's not just big data users that are for Net Neutrality:

    But a corporate alliance with subtle interests in this fight has been quietly pushing the Federal Communications Commission for strict broadband rules. In a series of meetings this year attended by representatives from Ford Motor (F), Visa (V), United Parcel Service (UPS), and Bank of America (BAC), participants urged FCC commissioners to reclassify broadband service under Title II, according to documents filed with the FCC.
    No one but republicans are dumb enough to go against Net Neutrality.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Then report me, ignore me, or go pound sand. I will continue to point out that Cruz sides with the ISPs.

    Excellent way to handle this issue Excon. You kicked ass on this, IMO!

    Yes, we have to continue to bash Obama. We cannot for an instance bring up the fact that both Obama and Cruz could be wrong. We have to only focus on Obama.
